Tony Blair will be pursued by a fluffy yellow chicken when he launches the Labour manifesto today.

The chicken, alias musician/actor Noel Flanagan, 39, has been sent by the Tories to pursue the Labour leader until he agrees to a television debate with John Major. A spokeswoman from Conservative Central Office said: "He will be following Tony Blair around until he agrees to do a TV debate. The Prime Minister has called him a big chicken and we all think he's a big chicken and we want him to sign up and do a debate."
